Where to begin..
How bout tallest to smallest..
Dan.. My sweetie.
For the last 4 years Dan has supervised a contract for the State of MA to supply employees to detention units in Dorchester, MA. His 90 minute commute thru Boston twice a day has made him quite the expert on talk radio and traffic patterns, but kinda grouchy by the time he got home.. This week he was able to transfer to Methuen.MA as the director of a juvenile recovery program. His commute is now 35 minutes..
The job has it''s pro''s and con''s, but for now it''s the lesser of the two evils..
Nicole.. Progress reports were issued recently and she received very good grades. She joined the cross country team and has been practicing every day after school with meets twice a week. Thats 2 miles a day, 5 days in a row.. She''s crazy! Also she was able to work the NASCAR races, Hopkington Fair and Deerfield Fair with us. (if you need to borrow money, she''s got quite the bankroll saved up)..
Emily.. we had her assessment done late Sept. Assessment was done by Child Psychologist, Speech Therapist and Developmental Pediatrician. We had an informal meeting after the assessment and each one gave their opinion. Speech Therapist feels that she does not have great muscle tone in her jaw, but didn''t have an exact diagnosis for her speech issues. Child Psychologist agreed with Emily, that she is in fact surrounded by idiots. She scored very high on her IQ test which will hopefully help her when it comes to overcoming communication issues. Pediatrician diagnosed her with Acute Adorable Syndrome (inherited from her mother) and gave her a clean bill of health.. Not sure what impact the assessment will have on her therapy, hopefully when the written reports are reviewed by her therapist we will know more.
Aiden.. 18 months old. When did that happen? He''s such a funny old man. He has been signing more frequently these days. He does Please,Cracker, Apple,Cheese and his all time favorite MORE.. When he get''s really excited (Casey feeding him M&M''s) he''s like a dog that does all the tricks he knows at once, sit, roll paw. Aiden does a funny dance signing cracker, please, more and cheese in one motion. Aiden loves to talk (in his own language) all the time.. He has recently begun singing, and the new favorite is to sing/yell "KITTY, WHERE ARE YOU?? Not bad, however what you hear is PITTTTTYYYYY, WHEAAAAA AAWWWWWWWW OUOUOU.. It can get a little harsh on the ears after a while.
If you made it this far in this never-ending- journal-entry you must be as tired as I am!
Have a great weekend..
